I was sent there by a local wine shop. Nice electronic music and mild lights create some atmosphere. Staff is lovely and drinks worth trying. Just had a lovely chocolate and pear dessert. Let's try dinner next time.

The restaurant is pretty funky with unusual decor and interesting dishes. The food is well prepared. Most of our dishes were delicious, save one pasta that was just a little heavily creamed and salted (for our taste) and so would rest at quite good. The...More
